About Visual Communication, MA - at University for the Creative Arts (UCA)

Visual Communication explores the mechanisms for conveying messages and meaning through a diverse range of media.

From the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt to the complexity of contemporary app design, the power of visual communication has been harnessed by businesses, organisations and individuals for millennia.

Our MA Visual Communication course is designed to prepare you for the contemporary professional world, helping you develop a confident design voice and create an outstanding portfolio of work.

On our course, you’ll be encouraged to develop new skills to strengthen and inform your design practice, and you’ll gain an understanding of the skill sets required for print, motion, and digital design. You’ll also have the opportunity to enhance your practice in the areas needed to become a creative leader and go on to a career within the broad field of visual communication, which includes areas such as print media, interaction design, motion design, web design, exhibition design and advertising.

We believe that the most successful designers are cultural innovators who, through their practice, inform, persuade and entertain.

MA Visual Communication is designed to help you develop a voice as an author and innovator, equipping you with the skills and knowledge to identify and solve design problems within cross-disciplinary environments. You’ll learn to approach design as an agent of change – a strategy for positively transforming behaviours in desirable and sustainable ways.

Using our dedicated studio spaces and independent study areas, you’ll develop your own style and design voice. You’ll learn through of a range of lectures, project briefs, workshops, written assignments, group critiques and individual tutorials.

Led by experienced professional designers with connections at the highest level of the industry, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate on a diverse range of projects with other members of our unique creative community.
